Why Attend

History of ISOLS

The Intermountain Student Outdoor Leadership Seminar (ISOLS) began when Brian Wilkinson returned from the International Conference on Outdoor Recreation and Education (ICORE) and decided the intermountain schools should create something that was more relevant to the students. His goal was to create a conference for the students, by the students that kept costs manageable so all students could be provided learning opportunities. From there he created the first ISOLS conference, which was hosted at the University of Utah. For the past 2 years, ISOLS has been hosted at Weber State University. The National Outdoor Leadership School's (NOLS) headquarters in Lander, Wyoming has also hosted the ISOLS conference.
